A woman's place

Ladies, you have a new partner in your wellness and health care. Live Oak Women’s Care is proud to introduce obstetrician/gynecologist Dr. Risa Curtis to the Hays County community.
Dr. Curtis is focused on childbirth, preventative health for young women and adolescents, annual wellness exams and improving obstetrical outcomes for her patients. Since opening the office this summer, she has treated patients of all ages.
“In a woman’s lifetime, she progresses through so many stages: the transition as a teen of becoming a woman, then pregnancy or struggling with fertility, and the menopause years. I help my patients maximize each phase so they are living their fullest life.”
She is also trained in da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery for various gynecologic procedures because it’s minimally invasive and gives her patients faster healing and less discomfort.
“To me, excellent communication and setting realistic expectations are key components to a trusting relationship between physician and patient,” she said. “It’s important to me to be able to read a person when I walk into a room and make sure they feel comfortable about what we’re discussing and doing.”
Dr. Curtis is from Austin and enjoys outdoor activities, art projects, trying new foods and spending time with her 5-year-old daughter.
